Our house is contemporary design from exterior. The roof is in the shape of a "V" on house and garage. This design is the opposite of the peaks generally seen on houses.... so has a deep valley in the center. The interior of the house is fine; however, I would like to know if a new roof line can be built over the current one just to give a more cosmetically appealing look to the exterior of the house. I do not wish to rip out the ceilings, etc. of the entire house in order to gain a different look as that would be way too expensive. Does anyone know of a way this can be done. I live in Atlanta & our house is the only non-Southern, traditional looking house in the neighborhood. I would like to sell this home, so do not want to undergo a huge renovation that likely would not raise the price of the home enough to make it worth it. A new roof line would give the home better street appeal. This house was built by an architect with a wild imagination (INVERTED PEAKED ROOF????)

Why not just leave it alone and let the new owner deal with changing it the way he wants to. Market it as a unique opportunity.

It would be an expensive proposition to change and there are probably ways to make it beneficial to do but in my opinion, not worthwhile for temporary quarters.
